The Primary Years Program Holistically Structures Education From Age 3 to Grade 4.
Vizyon College first primary years program is focused on a thematic approach. Thematic approach handles concepts in a whole by bringing together and associating different disciplines within the framework of selected themes.
As part of this program, teachers and students are encouraged to look at the world that surrounds them in new and different ways. Thematic learning is also an important way to transform scientific and investigative thinking into behavior in children. Effective learning methods ensure that children realize permanent and real learning through their experiences.
Children in this age group express themselves more comfortably in an atmosphere based on positive communication and cooperation. They easily learn positive social communication skills and their self-confidence improves.
Flexa Primary Years Program consists of 6 inquiry titles.
Skill Implementing Active Learning Environments
Children explore new concepts through experiences with "effective learning".
During kindergarten, the focus of education should be to develop learning skills.
Our program, which is built on the idea that each child is special and different, aims to both, prepare children for primary school, and by following their individual development, provide them with the tool that will make them individuals who can express themselves creatively, are highly self-confident, are at peace with themselves and their environment, are tolerant, are respectful of other individuals and opinions, and are responsible individuals.
The main framework of the Vizyon College's kindergarten education program is to provide an environment to develop “effective learning” and to help children think about their actions. Daily schedule of our kindergarten program consists of cleaning, plan-do-evaluate ranking, small and large group activities, and outdoor activities.
Designed in accordance with the “High Scope” approach, our classes are divided into various activity corners. Each corner has enough space for children to play comfortably. Shelves, materials and tools in the classroom are within the reach of children. The classroom layout, which provides an effective learning environment, gives children opportunities to constantly make choices and make decisions.
